Philadelphia Catastrophic Injury Lawyer
Fierce Advocacy for the Severely Injured & Their Loved Ones
In legal terms, catastrophic injuries are those that are so severe, they seriously affect the victim’s ability to return to the life he or she once enjoyed. Catastrophic injuries often result in temporary or permanent disability and may impact the victim’s ability to return to work or obtain any gainful employment whatsoever. The cost of treating such major injuries, further compounded by lost income and an inability to work, can place an inordinate burden on catastrophically injured individuals and their families.
If you or someone you care about suffered catastrophic injuries as a result of someone else’s careless, reckless, or wrongful actions, you have the right to seek financial recovery in the form of a personal injury lawsuit. At The Villari Firm, PLLC, we have over 20 years’ experience representing injured victims and their loved ones in Philadelphia and the surrounding areas. We can fight for you, too.
Examples of Catastrophic Injuries
Certain types of injuries are generally always considered “catastrophic,” in that they require extensive medical treatment and ongoing — and sometimes lifelong — care. Whether they occur in motorcycle or truck collisions, in construction accidents or explosions, or as a result of medical malpractice or negligence, these injuries typically impact every aspect of victims’ lives.
Examples of common catastrophic injuries include:
Note that this list is not exhaustive; certain soft tissue injuries and internal organ damage can also be catastrophic, as can loss of vision or hearing. In fact, any major injury that affects your ability to live your normal, day-to-day life can be considered catastrophic.
